“NB – Minimum wholesale order is $300. Minimum unit amount is included in the description section of each particular boat. Prices include GST. Delivery/Postage extra. The boats come with instructions. We can also provide instructions on “how to make your own liquid candle” upon request.” If you require an information sheet on how to make a liquid candle (which you can photocopy or scan into your computer) then add a note in the comments box on the order page and we'll send one with your order. Using your own liquid candle is beneficial in many ways (e.g. no cutting up small pieces of wax candles-which are messy to cut and use in the boat and melted wax can burn if accidentally spilled. If using a liquid candle, you can keep your boat running while adding more fuel (oil) into the candle spoon, as it burns off, without stopping it each time to change candles. This means you can keep you boat running indefinately. These boats sell as a static display but are in their "TRUE" element when displayed whilst they are running. Once people hear the noise they make, their interest will lead them directly to the boat. Once their interest has been piqued, a simple explanation of how they work is enough to engage the customer (and generally a sale is made). A lot of men had one of these as small children (particularly in the 30's) and will often buy for "nostalgic" value. They are a great seller and exceed themselves in a market environment but have proven to work just as well in a shop setting. We also have a lot of information on the history of these amazing little boats (olease request if required) or information can be "Googled" fairly readily. We are here for any after-sales service, should the need arise.
